You can transfer layouts and properties that you own to other members. Keep in mind that transferring a property or layout MOVES it from your account to the receiver's account, and you will no longer have ownership or management permissions for that property or layout. 



Transfer A Layout

Cost: 20 Rays


Transferring a layout will remove it from your account and send it to another member's account. If you'd like to keep a copy of a layout, you can save it as two separate layouts beforehand, and only send one to the receiver. 


Check Compatibility First!

Before sending someone a layout (or purchasing a layout), you should confirm that the receiver owns a compatible property. Layouts can only be applied to compatible properties, and will not appear in the Layouts tab of properties that are not compatible

  1. Go to the Layouts tab of the property your layout is on. 
    1. Click the Property tab in your Social Center
    2. Select the correct property group for the drop-down menu
    3. Find the correct property and click Manage
    4. Click the Layouts tab
  2. At the bottom of the page, you will see "Notes". 
    • Click "View compatible properties" to see a list of property types the layout can be applied to or
    • Click "use compatibility tool" to enter the VWW link of a specific property to see if it's compatible


Once you've verified with the receiver that they own a compatible property type, you can proceed to sending them a layout.



Send A Layout

  1. Go to the Layouts tab of the property your layout is on. 
    1. Click the Property tab in your Social Center
    2. Select the correct property group for the drop-down menu
    3. Find the correct property and click Manage
    4. Click the Layouts tab

  3. Click Transfer
  4. Read the transfer agreement and check the "I agree" box
  5. Enter the member name of the person you'd like to send the layout to
  6. If you'd like them to be able to transfer the layout, check "Allow this layout to be re-transferable". By default, this is unchecked and the receiver will never be able to send your layout to anyone else.
  7. Click TRANSFER to complete the transfer. 20 Rays will automatically be deducted from your account



Layout Transfer Issues

There are a few problems that can occur with layout transfers

  • "Ray transaction failed. (Check your balance)": If you do not have 20 Rays in your account, you will not be able to complete the transfer. Once you have enough Rays, you can try again
  • "Member does not have any instances of this property type.": You will receive this message if the receiver doesn't have a property compatible with the layout. They will need to own at least one compatible property for the transfer to work. See the "Check Compatibility First" section above for how to find out which properties are compatible
  • "Member is not a VWW owner": You will receive this message if the member doesn't have their own world. They need to create a world and own at least one compatible property for the transfer to work.




Transfer A Property

Cost: 20 Rays

Property transfers are permanent! Please keep in mind:

  • you will no longer own or have management permissions for any property you transfer to another member
  • You can only transfer properties you are the original owner of, unless the original owner checked the "Allow this property to be re-transferable" box when sending it to you
  • Some properties are exclusive to people with specific roles or licenses, or are limited-release. These properties may not be transferable, or may only be transferable to other members with the same roles or licenses.
  • Free properties can be transferred, but only if the receiver has not reached their maximum limit for that property type


To transfer a property:

  1. Navigate to the property in the Social Center
    1. Click the Property tab in your Social Center
    2. Select the correct property group for the drop-down menu
    3. Find the correct property and click Manage
  2. In the top section of the Edit tab, you will see a button that says Transfer. You will be given the option to transfer layouts or transfer the property.

  4. Read the transfer agreement and check the "I agree" box
  5. Enter the member name of the person you'd like to send the property to and click Check
